Easter Mail & Crafting

 I received a sweet Easter package last week from Debbie Kay, My Vintage Dreams...she sent goodies in the picture above and below.  Sweet vintage treasures and new ones. I sure do love kitchen towels and napkins!!  :)


When my kids were young, I read them the book "Home for a Bunny".. it's one of my favorite children's books. It was an "easy" read and darling pictures. I was so surprised that Debbie sent it to me. THANK YOU, Debbie! Also Love, " HE IS RISEN"... that is the meaning of Easter...



Tammy came over and we altered these birdhouses. She made the pretty one on the left and I made the one on the right along with the altered block. We had a nice time creating!

We went to an estate sale on Thursday that was a "crafter sale". I bought some scrapbook papers, stickers and a blond wood computer table to use in my craft room. I've been re-arranging my craft room this weekend. I need to let some "things" go...not sure that will happen!

Still waiting on Spring. We are now in a drought in Minnesota...so rain would be good.

warmly,
deb

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARGE!!!  A sweet lady that reads my blogs. We'll be coming this week to see you!

Just all sorts of lovely goodies for Easter. What a perfect partner. How fun that you and Tammy were able to squeeze in some crafting too. Happy spring!!

Debby said...

Cute gifts from the exchange. Love the books.
I like your bird houses as well.
It looks like spring with no snow but still chilly. It is going to come one of these days. Jut watch it will go from cool to hot. Spring is never long enough.
Happy almost Easter.

What fun gifts, Deb. It is always fun to get stuff like that on a trade, too.

Those birdhouses are adorable.

I still have a lot of Golden Books from when my kids were little. xo Diana

What beautiful gifts from another Debbie Kay! Wish I had thought of altering a birdhouse when I had one. Love it when I find papers and such at a garage sale!

What a wonderful package from Debbie. She is such a sweetie.

I love the bird houses! They reminded me that I have a couple in my stash and spring is time to dig them out and create. I need to clean out my craft area also. Why is it so difficult for us? Yay for your new craft table!

Hi Deb,
Lovely goodies. Thanks for stopping by my blog. For some reason, your comments are not showing up on my email :-S Not sure what is happening as I've noticed it from other people as well!

Darling little birdhouses, Deb! It's snowing again up north and not looking at all like spring. I've been checking the newspapers and no sales in our area yet!

Thanks so much for stopping by. My comments aren't going to my email, so I'm way behind on responding. Darn blogger issues!
